For a special occasion, my wife and I decided on a meal in Scholars. What a brilliant choice. Our servers were Eugene and Mark and their service was excellent. They were most helpful in describing the ingredients of each dish. As it was, the food was all grown or produced in the local area (except for the delicious fruit salad... More

Lovely food. Had a beautiful fillet steak with all the trimmings. Followed by a lovely brown bread and honey Icecream dessert. A well made irish coffee to finish. Service was good. Very quiet in both the restaurant and the bar. It was Sunday night. Enjoyable experience.

A post-Christmas evening out with friends was planned and we decided that Scholar's would admirably fit the bill. How right we were! As we had booked well in advance, it was lovely to receive a courtesy call on the chosen day to confirm our reservation. From the moment we stepped into the impressive reception area, we were accorded such a... More

My wife and I made a return visit to Scholars restaurant last night. It was very nice to be greeted by name by the same friendly staff. One man took our coats while another led us to our table. The menu had been updated ; some old favourites and some new courses. The waiters are well informed on the content... More

I have visited this restaurant many many times over the years. Historically, I always had praise for the standards set with regard to food, presentation and service. I have had lunch three times and dinner twice since October 2016 and every time have noticed a decline in the choice of dishes, the quality of dishes and the service. I understand... More

Brent, "Historically you always had praise for this place" where are the good reviews! You seem to be an accomplished reviewer and so as you said in your own review that you always had praise for us why not give an account of your good experience as well as your bad experiences...... I do believe you are totally inaccurate in... More
